22 Erotic Movies For Couples to Watch (2022)

22 Erotic Movies For Couples to Watch (2022) – Movies are our primary source of entertainment, and movie stars provide us with our daily dosage of desire. Love and passion portrayed in films have inadvertently become our manual for living our love and sex lives; we mimic the behaviors and ideas portrayed in films by our favorite matinée idols. So it’s no surprise that many couples enjoy watching movies (no, we’re not talking about porn) to get in the mood. If you and your spouse are looking for suggestions that will help you fall in love (read: lust) with each other, you’ve come to the perfect place. Here’s a collection of sensual, sexual, and romantic movies for couples to get you aroused on a date night. There are also erotic films for same-sex couples, whether gay or lesbian.

 Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

Two stunningly attractive people engaged in the most outrageous sexual fantasy imaginable is reason enough to reserve your seats to this euphoric delight of a film. The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ series, starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, works for one simple reason: sex. Their relationship’s lack of cerebral maturity is compensated for by an intense show of physical chemistry. Despite being a hardcore erotica film, the picture maintains a mainstream commercial appeal, thanks to the two actors’ high profile good looks and screen presence. ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is by no means a decent film, but it deserves credit for bringing unfettered sex in popular cinema. And, of course, the two characters in this story of love, passion, agony, and suffering became modern-day sex symbols, if only on the surface. They are at the bottom of the list because their intense love affair lacks any sense of purpose or freshness.

 Carol (2015)

‘Carol,’ directed by Todd Haynes, is simply one of the most beautiful films about what it’s like to fall in love. These are two people dying to fall into one other’s arms, desperate for emotional release from the confines of a frigid society. Therese is a quiet, young woman who is dissatisfied with her lover. Carol is an affluent, middle-aged mother who is about to divorce. These are two people at different stages of their lives, from different social classes, yet the world around them is cold and indifferent to their feelings and needs, and this is where they meet. With an outstanding ensemble and a complex storyline, Haynes creates a timeless love story that is full of warmth and heart.

 Nymphomaniac (2013)

‘Nymphomaniac’ tells the narrative of Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourg), a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac, who is found badly beaten in an alley by an older bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgrd), who takes her into his home. She tells him the torrid story of her adolescence and young adulthood while he cares to her wounds. ‘Nymphomaniac,’ while oddly humorous and provocative, is not von Trier’s best work — remember, he has numerous terrific films to his credit — but it is good enough to keep your interest from start to finish of its nearly four-hour running time. In early 2014, the MPAA gave Nymphomaniac an NC-17 rating. The film, however, renounced the MPAA rating and was distributed without it.

 Secretary (2002)

A young woman, recently released from a mental hospital, gets a job as a secretary to a demanding lawyer, where their employer-employee A young lady who has recently been released from a mental hospital takes a work as a secretary to a demanding lawyer, where their employer-employee relationship develops into a sexual, sadomasochistic one. A very odd sensual romantic story is set against the backdrop of sadomasochism. The film isn’t for everyone, yet it contains both amusing and strange moments. Maggie Gyllenhaal delivers a powerful performance.

 Lust, Caution (2007)

‘Lust, Caution’ contains some of cinema’s most gorgeously produced, realistic, and profoundly emotional sex sequences. Lee intended to incorporate as much reality as possible and asked that the sequences be as realistic and graphically explicit as possible, which caused a major censorship problem in his native country. It featured full frontal nudity and 10-minute-long sex scenes that apparently took over four days to film. However, the film received an uncut adult NC 17 rating in the United States, which made sense given the film’s extraordinarily bold visual and thematic themes.

 9½ Weeks (1986)

The title refers to the length of the relationship between John (Mickey Rourke), a self-absorbed Wall Street banker, and Elizabeth, a divorced art gallery owner (Kim Basinger). An striking, seductive, bold, and compelling erotic drama about relationships, human dark aspects, and discovering new sexual delights. It’s everything Fifty Shades of Gray could’ve been. ‘912 Weeks’ was a bomb when it first came out, but it has since gained a cult following.

 I Am Love (2009)

You must watch ‘I Am Love’ to see how a film grows beneath your skin as you watch it unfold. What starts out as a harmless family drama quickly transforms into a shady, emotional thriller. There’s a scene in the middle of the film that, despite being predictable, will strike you like a ton of bricks just because of the way it’s been portrayed onscreen. To put it brief, the film is about a wealthy lady seeking escape from her dull family duties through a passionate love affair. The film’s ability to keep you guessing and its incredible visual flair will wow you.

 Kiss Me (2011)

Mia’s father’s 60th birthday has arrived, and the time has come to announce her engagement to Tim. However, not only will they be married shortly, but so will her father, who has proposed to Elizabeth. On a weekend trip to Denmark with Elizabeth and her daughter Frida, Mia gradually falls for her stepmother’s daughter and embarks in a physical and emotional romance with someone she never anticipated to fall in love with. This Swedish drama, initially titled “Kyss Mig” but also known as “With Every Heartbeat,” depicts a beautiful love story through outstanding cinematography and, while the characters may not achieve their full growth and depth, great performances by the actors. The somewhat “cliche” topic and storyline don’t detract from the film’s excellence, and perhaps even demonstrate that it doesn’t matter how many times something has been created, but rather how it has been made.

 La Mujer de mi Hermano (2006)

This dramatic film stars Bárbara Mori, Christian Meier, and Manolo Cardono and has an interesting tale that will keep your attention from beginning to end. Ricardo de Montreuil, the film’s director, has brought the characters to life in a profound and stunning manner. It features a terrific storyline, which is primarily due to its thought-provoking lines, in addition to great acting and direction. “La Mujer de mi Hermano” follows Zoe, a lovely woman who is dissatisfied with her marriage. As a result, she seeks safety and begins an affair with her husband’s brother. This sets off a game of vengeance, secrecy, and passion that will forever alter that family.

 A Perfect Ending (2012)

This is the film for you if you’re seeking for an erotic drama to revive some energy and enthusiasm in your relationship. Rebecca, a middle-aged woman, is trapped in a loveless, sexless marriage in the film. Rebecca is urged to seek the services of a call-girl named Paris after confessing to two friends that she has never experienced an orgasm. The two women develop a camaraderie that transcends their sexual relationship. A Perfect Ending is a must-see, with plenty of sex scenes and a nice amount of drama tossed in.

 Heartbreaker (2010)

Is it only me? Or is it that the majority of French films I see are sexy? This film is enjoyable, despite the fact that the topic has, I believe, been explored previously. I couldn’t put it together when composing this article, but then it hit me, and you’ll see which one on this list is similar to this movie. In any case, the primary character in the film is Alex Lippi. He is an attractive man with the beauty and personality to attract any lady he desires. But he is not a man who does this because he wants to or because he is hardwired to have a good time dating a lot of girls. But don’t get me wrong. Alex has dated and broken up with a lot of women, but only because he was hired to do so. Yes, our protagonist ends relationships that were not meant to materialize, or that his clients did not want to happen. This time, Alex has been assigned the task of sabotaging the relationship of an Englishman and another lovely lady. But their love is undeniably strong. Will Alex be able to complete his task this time?

 Chicago (2002)

Catherine Zeta-Jones is an incredible actress. In this film, she shines in the role of a gorgeous deadly diva. The film is one of those sensual crime dramas in which beautiful hot women are the murderers and will go to any length to gain fame and be exonerated. Velma Kelly, an alluring Vaudeville dancer, is played by Catherine. She is in prison for murdering her husband after discovering him cheating on her with her sister (really, you had Catherine for a wife and you cheat, dude, you earned it). Roxie is another strong and lovely character in this film. She, too, has been imprisoned for murdering her partner after realizing he was not going to help her become successful or renowned. Both ladies now want to be acquitted, and they have a chance thanks to hotshot lawyer Billy Flynn, who is exceptional at exonerating female wrongdoers and turning them into superstars. But he only has one space, and he prefers Roxie’s act of self-defense story over Velma’s “can’t remember anything” story. Who will be given the opportunity?

 Basic Instinct (1992)

Sharon Stone’s famous leg-crossing sequence has become an iconic moment in movies that most people recognize from a distance. Although it is not the focus of the film, it is an aspect of the character she plays, a rebellious bisexual crime author who is the primary suspect in the death of a rock singer, Johnny Boz. This murder is being investigated by Nick Curran (Michael Douglas), who swiftly becomes caught in the entire complicated and fascinating case, as well as in a hot affair with the attractive blonde woman. Worth seeing for its outstanding crime plot and tight and scary cat-and-mouse game that will have you riveted to the screen and wanting more.

 Pretty Woman (1990)

Their on-screen chemistry has gotten a lot of attention. You only need to view the films they made together to realize what all the fuss is about. Their body language is relaxed, which contributes to their on-screen connection being warm and palpable. They also complement each other so well. Richard Gere’s worldly wisdom is the ideal instrument for soothing Julia Roberts’ restless, overheated personality. ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Runaway Bride’ are not only two of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic comedies, but they also established themselves as two of the most legendary onscreen lovers of all time. Although their film choices ensured that they never engaged in any out-of-bounds love-making moments onscreen, sex appeal, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. And if you’ve ever seen them together, you’d agree with me.

 Mr and Mrs Smith (2005)

They are the torchbearers of pop culture in the twenty-first century. They are the pinnacle of walking, talking sex icons. They were formerly real-life husband and wife, but they only shared screen time twice in their respective careers, the most recent being 2015’s ‘By the Sea,’ which is completely forgettable. Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005), their only previous picture together, isn’t a classic, but it does a good job of portraying its stunningly beautiful leads in a way that entertains spectators while keeping their sex appeal intact throughout. Every scene in the film provided an opportunity for ‘Brangelina’ to look beautiful, kick some asses, and make passionate love. Their romance is also claimed to have bloomed on the set of this picture.

 Unfaithful (2002)

It was only natural for the actors to pump up the heat to depict a story of forbidden love in a film like ‘Unfaithful’ and dealing with a subject matter like adultery. And the film proved to be a big hit with the audience thanks to its explicit and no-holds-barred love scenes. With his piercing eyes and smile, Olivier Martinez as the ex-flame/seducer exuded seductive charm. Diane Lane, on the other hand, stole the show with her sensitive performance as a woman trapped between lust and loyalty. Even though she was doing the wrong thing, the audience was taken in by her plight. There was evident energy between the two, and they didn’t leave much to the imagination in acting out their love for each other.

 Brokeback Mountain (2005)

Without noting the ground-breaking relationship between the two male leads in Ang Lee’s ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ the list would be incomplete. The depiction of LGBT romance in cinema can be divided into two periods: before and after the aforementioned film. It distinguishes out for its straightforward, no-frills portrayal of feelings between two people who defy gender and cultural constraints. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deserve all the accolades in the world for portraying two homosexual lovers, because few A-list actors would dare to do so. The dedication of the actors can be seen and felt in the way they played the roles without any preconceived assumptions. To put it mildly, revolutionary!

 The Apartment (1996)

They are mostly European movie stars that are known for taking artistic liberties and pushing the edge when it comes to conveying emotions on screen. They initially appeared together in the highly acclaimed French mystery-drama ‘The Apartment,’ which brought their dazzling chemistry to the attention of the globe. They worked together again in five more films, most notably in the controversial ‘Irréversible’ (2002). The fact that they were real-life husband and wife adds to the enchantment of their screen persona.

 The Notebook (2004)

Director Nick Cassavetes found the perfect cast in Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to play two passionate lovers who transcend societal prejudices and the harshness of time to spend their lives together in the film adaptation of ‘The Notebook.’ Although many felt the picture fell short of the novel, the language of love triumphed over a hit-or-miss screenplay and earned approval among spectators. The effortless connection between the protagonists was crucial to the film’s success, and who can forget those all-encompassing kisses exchanged by Gosling and McAdams?

 Dirty Dancing (1987)

Some movies are designed to be ageless, and ‘Dirty Dancing,’ with its titillating dancing movements and rebellious tone, has earned its fair position in that club. Baby, played by Jennifer Grey, is on the verge of sexual awakening when she meets Patrick Swayze’s light-footed yet severe Johnny. They meet on a dance floor and dance their way into each other’s hearts. Their physical chemistry and provocative gyrations made them overnight adolescent icons. The fact that ‘Dirty Dancing’ became the first movie to sell more than one million copies on home video suggests the impact of their popularity.

 Out of Sight (1998)

What happens when two naturally sexy movie actors team up for a daring ride including prison escape, firearms, automobiles, and wonderfully toned bodies? Hell breaks free, as the temperature skyrockets. The electric connection between Clooney and Lopez in ‘Out of Sight’ was lauded by reviewers and spectators alike. They were, of course, helped by Steven Soderbergh’s capable direction. It’s a million dollar issue why they never worked together again, but sometimes it’s best if they don’t repeat certain things since the magic only happens once.
